At Silverado we believe that how a person leaves this earth is as important as how they spent their life on it. Our skilled staff sees hospice care as the punctuation at the end of a life well-lived. This inspires a tireless work ethic focused on delivering comfort to our patients, mind, body and soul.
Providing the gift of peace and honoring what a loved one meant to the lives they touched is a profound privilege, so our full-service hospice care includes the following:
- Full-spectrum patient comfort care and pain management
- Care is provided based on the patient’s needs, desires and personality
- Guidance and support for families, including education on the disease process, bereavement support and maximizing quality of life for the entire family
- Care in-home, at a hospital or facilities such as assisted living communities
- Hospice guarantees to help ensure strong relationships
- Memory Catchers program provides the patient an opportunity to share in a lifetime of memories and experiences for their family.
- Essential Oils program, a safe, natural way to calm, soothe and increase circulation while helping to reduce the usage of certain medications.
- Partnership with We Honor Veterans to meet the special hospice needs of those who have served in the military.
